Recreation.gov recreation area details - Cheatham Lock and Dam - Recreation.gov
We found this place last year and fell in love with it.
It is clean, quiet, and friendly!!
When were were there last year the gal at the gate said they had only seen one other AS there in the few years she has been keeping gate.
We go to Nashville to visit family and its about 45 min away from there, but still priced very well compared to the Nashville KOA (have not been there).
In the future we look forward to more USACE operated sites when available.
Sites that we have frequented online for reservations are:
Both require you to set up an account, but all are easy to work with and it's nice that they keep track in your account of where you have been & where your going.
Note: Full payment for camping is due at time of reservation (unlike KOA who takes a partial if reserved in advance.)
Wanna stay all summer? Gate keepers are chosen by bidding on a job, they stay all summer at the site and just work at the gate during the day. Not sure of all the details, but if you really wanna see the area, and have the time, you can earn a little money at the same time.
